rOunDiNg uP tHe weEkeNd

We had some awesome thunderstorms this afternoon and early evening. Everything is fresh and new again after the rains. I enjoy this bit of peace.

Saturday night we went camping off the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was my first time and eLijAh's and dAiSy lOu's too! eLijAh had a little trouble falling asleep but other than that he was a champ! Miss dAiSy was just great. It stormed a bit late afternoon and then again overnight. Thank goodness our tent didn't leak! iSaAc has some pics of us on his camera so I'll get those up for you when I snag it from him.

The other bit of news worth celebrating is my work area is finally finished! YipPee!!! It's not perfect but I don't know if it can ever be that way - I'm too messy when I create. I've put everything in clear storage containers so I know what I have instead of digging through boxes. The challenge is putting things away when I'm done with them. I usually have piles of things scattered around me. That may always be the case but at least everything now has a home.




I want to end with a GIVEAWAY! I experimented with this little fellow which I call a "hUmbLe heArt". He can sit propped up or hang. He's just over seven inches tall and is three inches wide. He's what I call an "oOps!" project as his head is a bit mis-shapen. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE funky shaped heads but this one didn't do it for me. Just any comment will do and I'll draw on fRidAy, jUne 27.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I've got to get busy for the spOoKytiMe jiNgLes launch but I'll check in soon with everyone!

Hey Suz, Looks so organized. I need to do that badly with mine as well. It's funny you said about being a messy crafter. I am exactly the same way. I love the clear storage containers. Great Idea. You can see exactly what is inside.

Happy creating now is such a beautiful organized place.

Bonjour Suz! Baby Elijah looks ADORABLE ! I think I want one just like that ! He looks so cute and mischeavious! I think that art can not be created in a clean everything-is-put-away state. No matter how a working space is organized, I think our surrounding becomes an piece of art too, as the work on our tables evolves. My studio is a great room but it is always messy. I clean it up after each painting but no matter what, it is alive and has a life of its own! Best wishes on your new Spookytime Jingles! I will make sure to visit! Take care, LuLu xxx

Oh my word, that view is spectacular. Wanna trade? lol I long for those hills. I could get lost staring out among them. I have a great view of the ocean, so I can't complain, but wow that picture is breathtaking!
